CEGEP brotherly tandem opts for SMU (VIDEO)

CEGEP defensive back, quarterback/athlete joins AUS team’s 2016 class.

Saint Mary’s Huskies have announced the additions of Anthony and Raphael Muntu to their football program.

Both brothers will join the Huskies for the 2016 AUS season.

“These guys are competitors and versatile football players,” commented Huskies Interim Head Coach AJ Tufford.  “I can’t wait to see their success in the classroom and on the football field next year.”

Raphael is a 6’2, 195 pound defensive back from Laval, Quebec.  He comes to the Huskies after completing his CEGEP career with Division 1 team, Montmorency Nomades.  In eight games during the 2015 season, he registered 55.5 tackles, three pass deflections, recorded two sacks, six tackles for a loss, one block punt and one field goal.

Overall, the opportunity to play alongside his brother as well as a teammate and mentor tipped the scale in the Huskies favor.

“I’ve decided to commit to Saint Mary’s university because it’s a great program that has been sending guys pro,” elaborated Raphael. “The fact that they were interested in my younger brother Anthony Muntu (quarterback) played in favor of that commitment.”

“I wanted also to go play for a team that I could compete for a starter spot at my first year. The fact that I can play halfback, safety, corner or outside linebacker opened me a lot of spot on that defense. Team captain Kevin Myrthil has been my mentor since my first collegial year and the fact that he’s out there played a crucial decision on my commitment. The long way from home didn’t really butter me it will keep me focused on football and school.”

Anthony is a towering 6’6, 200 pound quarterback/athlete from Montreal, Quebec who recently suited up for CEGEP Division 1 team, Vieux-Montreal Spartiates for two seasons.

“I chose SMU for a new start in a new town in a new province,” said the pivot of his commitment.
